Maryland is alive with the deadghosts, haunted houses, and things that go bump in the day, as well as the night. This is a collection of twenty-five of the states most fascinating accounts of the supernatural from the flatlands of the Eastern Shore to the mountains of western Maryland. Youll read ghost tales that are as varied as Marylands topography. Youll meet characters like the infamous slave kidnapper, Patty Cannon, and the controversial Dr. Samuel Mudd. Whether or not you believe in ghosts, this little book will entertain, amuse, and (just maybe) raise a few goosebumps.
Ninety seven species of macro-molluscs were collected from four rocky beaches viz. Manora, Buleji, Nathiagali and Cape Monze along the Karachi coast from December 1993 to December 1995. More species were recorded from Buleji (68) and Manora (63) compared to Nathiagali (55) and Cape Monze (57). Gastropods dominated on all the four sites studied. Four species were commonly abundant on all the four sites viz.: Turbo coronatus, Nerita albicilla, Morula granulata and Cerithium rubus. The average number of species decreased with increase in the tidal heights at Manora, Buleji and Nathiagali whereas this was greater in the high tidal zone at Cape Monz rocky shore. The average number of individuals of molluscs was greater in mid tidal zone at Manora and Buleji rocky shore whereas it was greater in low tidal zone at Nathiagali and Cape Monz.
This text integrates a wide range of research and tidal resource theory and data to present a detailed analysis of the physics and oceanography of tidal stream power devices together with a world wide resource analysis. Clearly structured throughout the book is divided into two distinct parts. Part One provides the theoretical background to the subject and deals with the historical development of the harmonic method for the synthesis of tidal currents; the principles of fluid and tidal flow and the principles of device ducts, turbines and electrical systems. A review and analysis of more than forty tidal stream power proposals is also discussed. Part Two provides a comprehensive overview of current practice. The economic modelling of tidal stream power installations is covered with more than three hundred current meter records from around the world used to analyse the potential and cost of tidal stream power on a global basis. Hallmark Features: reviews the tidal resources around the world complete analysis of tidal stream power systems includes historical information on tidal science and biographical information on major figures concentrates on engineering physical geography rather than engineering specifics includes a website with a wide range of computer models, data and simulations
Which working condition aspects have an impact on job satisfaction in Eastern European countries and which aspects are relevant determinants for the level of job satisfaction in Western European countries? And is the differentiation between Eastern and Western Europe a reasonable classification approach in regard to the countries’ wealth level or not? These questions are answered by analysing the answers of the European Working Conditions Surveys.
The reproductive ecology of three species of decapod crabs, the shore crab (Carcinus maenas), the velvet crab (Necora puber) and the edible crab (Cancer pagurus), were studied in Swansea Bay and south Gower. The genetic makeup of the shore crab populations present in Swansea Queen’s Dock and Mumbles Pier was compared using SSCP and cloning analysis of the 16S rRNA. Four different haplotypes were identified, with low level of genetic divergence, and close relationship of the identified haplotypes with published shore crab haplotypes. AMOVA showed no significant difference between the study populations and published shore crab haplotypes. However, all identified haplotypes were different from published shore crab haplotypes, indicating a degree of reproductive isolation of the Swansea shore crab populations. Analysis of the permit return data for 1980-2002 of the edible and velvet crab fishery for the South Wales Sea Fisheries Committee District indicated that a combination of factors including overfishing, environmental conditions, and the “Sea Empress” oil spill in 1996 have contributed to a decline in landings that continues to date with limited signs of recovery.
The North-Western Region of Bangladesh is situated in the river basin of Tista and Jamuna, and contains many tributaries of these. This region is under the Rangpur division .The local economy is heavily dependent on agriculture .The region is famous for wheat production area. The soils of this region are sandy and sandy loam. The area is also famous for archaeological site. It is said that Bhitargarh is largest archaeological site (exacerbation going on ) of South Asia. The historical place Kantaji Temple and Tajhat Jamider Bari are famous and every day hundreds of people visit these .The Ramsagar , the Nilsagar and Maharaja Dhigi bear the history of this area. The Teesta barrage and Enclaves of this region is always a hot issue.
The North Sea and the Baltic Sea are undergoing climatic changes. Here, long time series of observations from lightships and coastal stations are combined with modeling to investigate the changes in sea temperature, salinity, and sea level. The observed sea surface temperature at the Drogden Station in the transition zone had 10-year running mean temperatures ranging from 8.2 to 9.1C during 1904-1985. By 1992, it had increased to 9.8C, and it has kept that level since. The model scenario shows larger warming in the Baltic Sea than in the North Sea for the 21st century. The projected warming indicates that the rate of warming observed at the Drogden Station since the 1980s may continue. The observations also provide the basis for a detailed climatology. The mean observed absolute sea level rise measured by 8 Danish tide gauges between 1901 and 2000 was 1.5+-0.5 mm/year (90% confidence interval). The model scenario indicates increased westerly winds and increased storm surge heights on the eastern North Sea coasts, as well as in the far ends of the Gulf of Finland and Bothnian Bay. No significant wind induced storm surge height increase was seen in the transition zone.
School bullying is widely recognised as an international problem, but publications have focussed on the Western tradition of research. A long tradition of research in Japan and South Korea, and more recently in mainland China and Hong Kong, has had much less exposure. There are important and interesting differences in the nature of school bullying in Eastern and Western countries, as the first two parts of this book demonstrate. The third part examines possible reasons for these differences - methodological issues, school systems, societal values and linguistic issues. The final part looks at the implications for interventions to reduce school bullying and what we can learn from experiences in other countries. This is the first volume to bring together these perspectives on school bullying from a range of Eastern as well as Western countries.
This book aims to prove the impact of negative side of Utilitarianism on the moral principles of society, as reflected in Dickens' Hard Times and Mahfouz's Zuqaq AL-Midaqq. The book also focuses on finding out the similarities and differences between Dickens' viewpoint about utilitarianism and that of Mahfouz, especially how this concept is reflected in the Western and Eastern societies. They show people's struggle to fight back the consequences left behind by utilitarianism, along with its bad effects on society structure and morale as a whole. The eighteenth and nineteenth centuries have come to carry out the soul of change all over the world by depending on the geographical Western discoveries. The West has begun to apply their theories upon the East that can be shown in Naguib Mahfouz's writings and other Eastern novelists. Furthermore, Mahfouz based his philosophy on the ideas of the Western scholars, such as Charles Darwin, Mill, Freud, and Bentham. Mahfouz's standards of living let him think of social reforms in his Ziqaq Al-Midaq to advocate upgrading the lower class to become nearby other classes by depending on getting rid of oppression, on the part of the high class.

Marine Crustaceans specially the shrimps and the crabs are consumed by humans.Through the information on shrimp larvae of the Arabian Sea is available but that on other crustacean groups is fragmentary. The book is intended as an umbrella for the described crustacean larvae separated from the off shore plankton samples of North Arabian Sea Ecological and Environmental Research(NASEER)Cruise1,a joint Pakistan-U.S.programme and those obtained on monthly basis in the coastal waters of Pakistan(Manora Channel,Karachi).Most of the primary identification characters are illustrated.The larvae were identified to generic level.The study includes the occurrence and abundance of crustacean larvae during NASEER Cruise1 samples from 18 stations and their monthly record in near shore stations by the authors.This sampling provides background and baseline data that will prove useful in understanding the change in properties in fisheries productivity or environmental damage due to pollution.Pakistan is now on the threshold of entering the field of aquaculture and much nformation is needed on the distribution and abundance of larvae and postlarvae of the local species.
Global sea levels have risen significantly through the 20th century.These rises will accelerate through the 21st century and beyond because of Climate change and global warming. Due to the sea level rise, the Indian Ocean Islands in general and the Bay of Bengal in particular are experiencing the largest relative increase and flood risk.The number of people who experience sea level rise are also affected by other factors,such as increasing population within the coastal flood plain.Therefore in this book an attempt has been made to highlight the adverse impact of sea level rise on the people of coastal odisha. Since coastal population are already large and growing rapidly in Odisha, this book is an important one to understand various range of climatic effects including an acceleration in sea level rise.
